    Does anyone have a spare oil level sensor?

    I don't mind if its new or used. Beer tokens waiting! Mine is knackered and I'm getting tired of the beep. I'm dropping the oil soon, so its a good time to change the sensor.

    Parrot mki9200 - S3

    I have a Parrot bluetooth handsfree (with cable Ipod connection) in my S3. It works just as you'd expect it too. When playing your Ipod/radio/CD ifa call comes through it mutes the music and the persons voice comes through the speakers. As soon as the call is ended the music resumes. However...

    8L S3 in EVO mags greatest 4x4 handling test!!
